GoAir’s A320neo fleet to get Honeywell APUs

Honeywell Aerospace has been selected to install and maintain the auxiliary power units (APU) for GoAir’s fleet of 72 A320neo airplanes. Honeywell will also provide GoAir with its fifth-generation flight recorders which feature resilient memory capabilities for data logging and tracking.

As part of the contract, GoAir will be adopting Honeywell’s 131-9A APU. This APU is expected to reduce flight delays and cancellations by enhancing airplane operability. Honeywell’s 131-9A APU will also lower operational costs and emissions for GoAir, as it can use 3.3 per cent less fuel.

“With domestic travel demand within India on the rise, it is vital for regional airlines to increase turnaround times and improve dispatch reliability by keeping airplanes in the air more and less on the ground. Airlines such as GoAir can better manage operations and costs during downtime, while reducing flight delays and cancellations for passengers,” said Arijit Ghosh, president, Honeywell Aerospace India.

Wolfgang Prock-Schauer, CEO, GoAir, commented, “Passenger comfort is paramount, and we are committed to delivering a consistent and punctual travel experience. Honeywell’s APU and maintenance, as well as its flight recorders, are already in place on our A320 airplanes. Our most recent investment allows us to continue delivering the same superior passenger comfort and reliability across our full range of fleets.”
